The City is providing a fantastic opportunity to own your own kilt by purchasing one when you register.

Fashioned with two belt buckles and velcro to adjust, these kilts are made of good material that will keep you warm while on the course. The kilts are measured in inches and it may be necessary to adjust within one or two sizes of your original pant size.

If you are picking up your kilt, please arrive early if you want to ensure you have the right fit.
